Bearcat-of-the-Week honours went to defenceman Alex De Gagne. The Bearcats acquired his playing rights in early February. His arrival made the defensive corps deeper, faster, and more skilled. He’s used in all situations.
Following a season of U16 hockey with the Vaughan Kings (GTHL) he moved on to Terrebonne, QC for a year with College Esther-Blondin Pheonix. At the end of that 2017 season he was drafted by the Shawinigan Cataractes, suiting up for two seasons with the Cataractes. Last year a trade brought him to the Victoriaville Tigres. After 10 Tigres games this year, he was traded to the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies in this Covid year. The option to play hockey brought him to Truro. He was a great fit from the outset. In his first 6 Bearcat games, he’s scored 2 and assisted in 2 others.
